The Technical University of Crete joins the Reveil festival by presenting Flora and Fauna Preservation Park Soundscape.

The arts cooperative Soundcamp organized the 8th Reveil Festival that took place online on 1-2 of May 2021. Reveil is a collective production by streamers at listening points around the planet. Starting on the morning of Saturday 1 May in South London near the Greenwich Meridian, the broadcast picked up feeds one by one, tracking the sunrise west from microphone to microphone, following the wave of intensified sound that loops the earth every 24 hours at first light. Events also take place the following years (2022 and 2023).

Reveil relays the sounds of live open microphones operated by streamers on the Locus Sonus soundmap, Cyberforest programme, LIDO deep water hydrophone observatory, BIOM Open Microphone network, and elsewhere. It spans from formal research to domestic projects and one-off broadcasts.

Reveil 2021 was mixed live by Soundcamp in London UK (Grant Smith, Hannah Kemp-Welch), Crete GR (Maria Papadomanolaki) and guest mixers Leah Barclay (Biosphere Soundscapes) on the Sunshine Coast, QL and Fernando Godoy (Tsonami) from Santiago, CL.

Partner organisations in the Acoustic Commons project: Full Of Noises (Cumbria UK) · Locus Sonus (Aix FR) · Radio CONA (Ljubljana SLO) · HMU (Crete GR) · Cyberforest (Tokyo JP).

The broadcast of the Flora and Fauna Preservation Park Soundscape is a collaboration of UK-based arts organisations Soundcamp and Octopus Collective (Full of Noises) funded by the Acoustic Commons research program. The streaming of the Park Soundscape will be permanent for further studying and for backing up a series of educational actions based on acoustic valus and biodiversity. 

The streambox is installed and maintained by Dr Maria Papadomanolaki (Soundcamp) in collaboration with Antonia Zacharouli (FFPP, TUC)
